Lyrics
Girl I can understand how it might be
kinda hard to love a guy like me
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
I loved you better than you own kin did
from the very start
it's my own fault for what happens to my heart
you see I've always known you'ld go

So you just do what you gotta do
my wild sweet love
Thou it may mean I'll never kiss those sweet lips again
pay that no mind and find that dapper dream of yours
and come on back and see me when you can

Now I know they make you feel sad
umm... make you feel s_____d
say you don't treat me like you should
they got ways to make you feel no good
I guess they've got no way to know
I've had my eyes wide open from the start
and girl you've never lied to me
and the part of you they'll never see
is the part you've shown to me

So you just Do what you gotta do
my wild sweet love
Thou it may mean I'll never kiss those sweet lips again
pay that no mind and find that dapper dream of yours
and come on back and see me when you can

So you just Do what you gotta do
my wild sweet love
Thou it may mean I'll never kiss those sweet lips again
pay that no mind and find that dapper dream of yours
and come on back and see me when you can
